Kellee's MPH Degree allowed her to

Following my graduation from the Florida State University Masters in Public Health program I was hired by the Jaeb Center for Health Research, a non-profit clinical trial coordinating center in Tampa, Florida. I have worked for the Jaeb Center as an epidemiologist and biostatistician for over 6 years. Currently, I am the Principal Investigator and Coordinating Center Director for a randomized clinical trial funded by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I am a member of the American Diabetes Association and the Society for Clinical Trials. Over the past 6 years I have been an author on over 20 peer-reviewed journal publications and have given numerous presentations at national and international conferences. I am a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at the University of South Florida and look forward to completing my Ph.D. and continuing to grow in the field of public health.

The masters in public health program at Florida State allowed me to choose electives in statistics and epidemiology in order to cater my education towards my area of interest. I was able to take advanced applied statistics and epidemiology courses under the psychology and sociology departments. I very much enjoyed being able to create my own personal concentration while also receiving a strong foundation in public health from the traditional course work.
